    Our Latest Principal’s Newsletter dated on June 30, 2020 – St. Celestine School continues to prepare for face-to-face learning in the fall, with our first day of school being August 20. Every effort is underway to provide a safe, healthy, calm start to the year, integrating the expectations of the Archdiocese of Chicago and Illinois State Board of Education into our educational program. As clarity around them continues to evolve, I will keep you posted on what changes to expect. – Thanks to the families who completed the survey on our remote learning program. Over 80 families provided information on their experiences. That information has already been used to make some decisions about educational programming so that we are well situated for anything the future holds… – I encourage you to watch this recent Today Show clip exploring remote learning and equity issues for families. St. Celestine School is being proactive to support and improve so that all of our students can learn and all of our teachers can teach… – We strive to stand apart from all schools in the area in terms of what we have and what we offer. That is true for face-to-face instruction and remote learning. The school never stops in its quest to be the best for you and your family.

CARDINAL CUPICH'S MESSAGE TO FAMILIES
June 8, 2020
Cardinal Cupich on Plans to Reopen Schools

MESSAGE FROM THE ARCHDIOCESE OF CHICAGO
APRIL 17, 2020

Dear Catholic School Parents and Guardians,

Earlier today, Gov. Pritzker announced the extension of the statewide closure of all schools in Illinois through the remainder of the academic year. As this announcement impacts Catholic schools, our Catholic school buildings will remain closed for the rest of the 2019/20 school year.

I know that this has been a challenging time for our Catholic school families and educators. Nevertheless, I have been sincerely impressed by the hard work of our students, parents/guardians, and educators. Our Catholic school teachers and principals have demonstrated extreme dedication as they have implemented high-quality e-learning and alternative learning programs They have distinguished themselves in reaching out to individual families to ensure that students are learning, are safe, and happy. I am extremely grateful to our educators for their continued efforts in these unprecedented circumstances.

I am also thankful for the work of our parents and guardians. I know it has not been easy to support the education of your child at home. Know that our schools are committed to continuing high-quality e-learning and alternative learning in the weeks ahead. If you are in need of specific support, know that you are welcome to reach out to your school or the Office of Catholic Schools. As always, we value your partnership as we support the education and faith formation of your child.

I am aware that the continued closure of our school buildings will impact many end-of-year events in our schools, such as graduations, awards ceremonies, and other important events. As these vary school by school, your principal will communicate your school’s plan for such events. I encourage you to be flexible and understanding as plans are made for the future.

We fully anticipate the resumption of classes in the fall and anticipate that there will be opportunities for families to collect any personal belongings left in school buildings once it is deemed safe to do so.

Finally, I encourage you to view the growing set of resources for parents on the Office of Catholic Schools website. To access these resources, please visit the Family Resources page.

Know that you and your family continue to be in my prayers. May God bless and protect our Catholic school families and educators and return us safely to school in the fall.

Yours in Christ,

Jim Rigg, Ph.D.
